Deep Purple – Smoke On The Water chords ver. 2
I tried playing the others and they didn't sound right. So here is my version . usually I mute the G string due to bad hand position, and it sounds fine.G 3--5--5--4--3--3A# 6--8--8--7--6--6C 8--10-10-9--8--8C# 9--11-11-10-9--9F 1--3--3--2--1--1G# 4--6--6--5--4--4if in () it may not be right, but I play it like that. Sometimes, I play the verses with the intro riff, and it sounds fine like that too. Not sure which is right. Haven't heard the song in a while.

Intro Riff x2 Solo: No idea, may update it later. Verse 3: We ended up at the Grand Hotel It was empty cold and bare But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside Making our music there With a few red lights and a few old beds We make a place to sweat No matter what we get out of this I know, I know we'll never forget Chorus: Smoke on the water, fire in the sky Smoke on the water... Intro Riff x4 Instrumental Verse; fade out
